Herbal and Essential Oil Bath Salt Soak
Because water has a lack of form and direction it can leave us feeling unsteady but can also show us the fluidity of our path, where we have been and also where we are going.
This bath soak is a steadying mix to find balance whilst we are in this month of the water element.
A synergistic blend of calming, soothing Lavender, with focusing Rosemary and the nurturing and uplifting scent of Geranium to help restore some emotional balance.
100g Salts of your choice – epsom salts or pink Himalayan salts
2 tsp dried lavender flowers - I picked mine from the garden and dried them.
2 tsp dried rosemary leaves - I picked mine from my herb border and used fresh leaves
10 drops Lavender oil
8 drops rosemary oil
5 drops geranium oil
Pour the salts into a glass mixing bowl, add the essential oils and stir to help the salts absorb the scents from the oil blend.
Mix in the dried flowers and pour into a glass container and seal. You can make this salt soak mix in larger quantities but make sure to keep the ratio of oils to salts the same.
I like to recycle my old glass candle pots and use them to store my lotions and potions in.
When you want to use the salts, you can add your mix straight into the bath water or, to prevent the flowers an herbs escaping into the water you can add the mix to a cotton muslin cloth and tie together at the top with some string making a little bundle. Tie the bundle around your hot tap so that the hot water will run through the bundle, soften the salts and oils, dissolving them into the bath water.
Lay back in your bath and inhale the soothing, steadying aroma.
